The facts are astounding: “over a billion people lack access to clean water, i.e. globally, 1 person in every 6 goes without clean water”, “more people die every year from waterborne disease than from war”,”every 15 seconds a child dies from water related disease”, “an American taking a five-minute shower uses more water than the typical person living in a developing country uses in a whole day”, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.
The overwhelming nature of the facts can distract us and cause us to forget that at the basis of those facts are people. Mothers and Fathers. Sons and Daughters. Neighbors and Friends. The facts often focus on the big picture, but at the root, they are based on real lives, being lived, and lost, by real people, in real communities. They are based on people just like you and me.
Dynamic Water is an organization dedicated to bringing clean, safe drinking water to those communities that don’t have access to such water. We realize that we will not be able to bring clean drinking water to all the people that need it, but we refuse to let that stop us. While we cannot provide clean, safe water to everyone who needs it, we can provide it for one community… one group of families and friends… one group of people.
Welcome to our journey. Why don’t you come along and help us change some lives.
